Bridging Distance: Promising Practices for Online Learning in the Canadian Literacy Community (2009)

This manual was developed as part of a two-year Getting Online (GO) project funded by the Office of Literacy and Essential Skills, Human Resources and Skills Development Canada and sponsored by Athabasca University. All members of the GO team were involved in delivering online learning to literacy practitioners in their home provinces and saw potential benefits in using technology for professional development.

The manual is divided into four chapters. The first chapter, Being an Online Learner, discusses how to set up for online learning; working with groups online; and contributing to an online learning community.

The second chapter, Developing Online Learning Content, deals with developing online courses and content, while the third chapter, Exploring Online Learning Technology, looks at common technologies that can be used for online learning.

The fourth chapter, Facilitating Online, explores roles and required skills as well as offering the authors’ top ten tips for online facilitation.
